An Introduction to Grade 2 Science

In second grade, children begin to ask bigger and deeper questions as they broaden their knowledge of the world. By the end of Grade 2 Science, children will be able to:

  • Develop an understanding of what plants need to grow and how they depend on animals for seed dispersal and pollination.

  • Develop an understanding of observable properties of materials through study and classification of them.

  • Understand that wind and water can change the shape of the land, and compare possible solutions that could slow or prevent such a change.

  • Use information and models to identify and represent shapes and kinds of landforms (plains, hills, mountains) and bodies of water.
